Here are some sweet thoughts going into Easter Sunday...
"For our sake he (God) made him (Jesus) to be sin who knew no sin, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God." 2 Corinthians 5:21
"but God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us." Romans 5:8
"But now the righteousness of God has been manifested apart from the law, although the Law and the Prophets bear witness to it - the righteousness of God through faith in Jesus Christ for all who believe. For there is no distinction: for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and are justified by his grace as a gift, through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus, whom God put forward as a propitiation by his blood, to be received by faith." Romans 3:21-25a
Thank you for the cross, Jesus! Thank you for the forgiveness I could not earn! Thank you for the conquered grave I could not defeat! Thank you for saving me!
